Buffalo intros first dual format high definition drive



It’s not just LG sticking with both high definition disc formats, with Buffalo announcing their first external optical drive able to read and write to Blu-ray Discs, and read HD DVDs.

The unit can read and write to double-layer (50GB) Blu-ray discs at up to six times speed, read HD DVDs at up to 3x, as well as read and write to standard DVDs at up to 16x.

The BRHC-6316U2 (whoa) is fully plug-and-play compliant, and connects via USB. Buffalo’s TurboUSB technology enhances performance and the Secure Lock Ware Windows software improves security.

Available from late April with a suggested price of £284.
